“What’s in your drinking water?”
Arsenic has a greater impact on human health than any other environmental contaminant.
· Water from up to 10 percent of residential wells in Maine has elevated arsenic levels, with that number reaching 60 percent in some towns in the coastal “arsenic belt.”
· We spoke with Dr. Bruce Stanton, a visiting scientist at the MDI Biological Laboratory, about the health impacts of arsenic and other toxins in your drinking water, and the steps you can take to protect yourself.
